Boyhood Birmingham fan Craig Gardner sent the Blues through to their first major Wembley final for 55 years with an extra-time strike to give them a 3-1 victory (4-3 on aggregate) in Wednesday night's Carling Cup semi-final clash with West Ham at St Andrew's.
Gardner's goal capped a dramatic comeback by Alex McLeish's side who had fallen 3-1 behind on aggregate after Carlton Cole's superb first-half strike.
Lee Bowyer and Roger Johnson forced the game into extra time before Gardner's moment of glory.
